This two ingredient Zucchini Cheese Bake is another one of my favorites and a perfect side dish for this time of year.

And next time you need ranch dip for a veggie tray or for dipping chips, give this fantastic Homemade Ranch Dip a try. It has a secret little ingredient that makes it extra special.

Can you tell I love Barbecues and Potlucks? There’s just something so right about eating good food with people you love.

Next time you’ve got friends or family heading over for some good times and good food, throw these awesome baked beans together. You’ll be glad you did.
